    Caroline Devine

    Composer Biography

    "My practice investigates the boundaries between sound and music, encompassing electroacoustic composition, sound installation, radio and theatre. I have a particular interest in the use of space as a compositional parameter and in the ways that sound articulates space and spaces influence sound. My work focuses on the exploration of voices and sounds that are obscured, silenced or are in some way absent - making imperceptible or ignored signals audible through amplification or transformation to acoustic form." Caroline Devine 2013
